assume that everybody puts their homes to good use, and secondly our figures show that our loss of winter heat in the units four and five each is $90, so when they want to they take an average of the five unit in order to make the dollar amount smaller. the lower units are greater impacted in the winter. there is no impact from april to september. we know that. we don't need the heat that we do need in the winter. our loss is in the winter. we asked them for a 10-foot setback. we believe that if she chose she could get the space by the first floor and build out and the original plans didn't include the first floor but there is a way to get extra space and preserve our right to a active solar sun house. thank you. >> project sponsor you have a two minute rebuttal. >> cass smith again. i would like to clarify a couple of things and i am sure we're all in favor of uses of alternative energy and the number as described as 50% is not at all the case. if you average this out over the year and the units it's less than a 10% difference. it's quite minor and if you look at the documents tha

suspect that most candidates will do it at some point in the future and we can use that as a argument to make it mandatory. >> okay. >> we work on any complaint violation and we are a complaint based, yes. >> and the only way that we know that someone willfully or unwillingly violated this is if someone complaints to you telling you so and so is actually a contractor and they made a contribution. and that is the only way this we would really know. >> right. and the forms that are filed for this particular when the contracts are made by the city officials we don't have a paper form and it is on the list of things to do, but we really only one move one a year and so that is a few years down the line and a more searchable data base and it will be better for the people to figure out and in the process but in the meantime, it is a tough responsible. >> and now, i would say, as we learned dramatically in the last month and a half or so, the government works slowly, in terms of electronic technology. and so we will forgive ourselves on that note. >> so, any further discussion on this? >> i j

them from uber technology, the game is cash money and all over they are going to put us out of business. >> nor aiesa >> good evening, my name is nor aiesa, i have been a driver for about 35 years, i have experienced up cycles and down cycles. this cycle i must be honest it's one of the worst i have experienced and yet i have not seen the market end of the tunnel. but i still strongly believe that we can do things to fix it. it's fixable, we still can save it. however, we all have to compromise a little bit and i use the word compromise, not sacrifice, it's not there yet but we have to do something about it. i would be willing to discuss all the small details in this regard but it can't be done possibly now, i don't have the time. however, i am supportive of this new agreement, it could do no harm, it could only do something good for the industry. we are all in it together, we have huge competitor outside here and we already have to compete with them on the technological level and central dispatch is the way to go to give better service to the community. i heard all the speaker

in support of an eta system. i think some of us, you know, have been crying in the wilderness for many years for not even a centralized dispatch system per se but just an integrated system so that if you call a company and they couldn't provide you with a cab and there was another company that could and you were willing to take it you could get that cab and that has never happened because cab companies have blocked it down the line. now we have a system that doesn't even require company participation, it's a combination between the prospective passenger and the driver. i think companies have a role in this but i don't think that they are the prime actors in this. and there's just too many balkanization. one is availability and the other is the efficiency of delivering that service and that's where things have fallen down. the ability to get a cab, any cab in the city potentially through a taxi app is essential, an essential tool now in terms of competition. but i do have to say that i do have problems with this contract and it has to do with the extent and the scope of the informa

speaking first, as a member of the land use committee. this week at the meeting there was an unanimous vote to repel the larkin. the land use chair made a remark about the fiscal sponsor. a cry went out like a spontaneous cry of disgust because neighborhood associations don't do this and this is the end of our land use process. instead of macro decisions on sequa it's based on who put out their hand and accepted money and said it's for community benefit, you know. actually a representative from the mta very eloquently said after that, the unanimous vote was taken to oppose the vote. now i want to say that is rather disappointing and there's a reason for that. when you decide that you're going to pay attention to some little group rather than the community at large you crush the public process. in that district of chinese project owners the wonsz ones who are reached are reached by the 3 china's properties that are involved in that. and after the decision, you know, one can't even be contacted who was the one who was talking to her neighborhood. in the case of 11 latino herita
